Eucomis ‘Oakhurst’
at Digging Dog

Eucomis

Pineapple Lily

A phenomenal display from a wondrous bulb, Eucomis belongs to the Lily family and calls tropical southern Africa its home. While its bold architectural lines beg a prominent spot in the ground or in a container, Pineapple Lily prefers warm, sunny nooks with mulched, well drained soil, and protection from excessive winter cold and moisture.

Eucomis ‘Oakhurst’ full sun

Massive deep ruby red spikes, densely studded with star-like milky pink flowers, ascend from a gorgeous upright rosette of thick vibrant burgundy straps. Tantalizing pollinators, horticulturists and florists, the long lasting blooms are crowned by pineapple-style clusters of small leaves, while showy persistent seed capsules extend the floral splendor. A sensational choice for a container, along a pathway or atop a rock wall, ‘Oakhurst’ flourishes in bright well-drained abodes, appreciates mulch (especially during cold winters) and endures drought, though it prefers moderate moisture.

Blooms July–September

Size: 2' 0"–2-1/2' high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
